SAN announced that the next Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD) will be celebrated on July 14, 2017. The date will mark the eighth consecutive commemoration in what is now an annual event to raise awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society.

The Manitoba Association of Auto Clubs hosted their annual Collector Car Appreciation Day celebration at the Provincial Capital Legislative Building in Winnipeg. The display included more than 400 vehicles as well as featured speakers from Canadian government and business.

“The U.S. Senate first recognized Collector Car Appreciation Day in 2010 at our request and helped launch this annual event,” said SEMA Vice President of Government Affairs Steve McDonald. “As we prepare for the eighth celebration of our nation’s automotive heritage, enthusiasts and related businesses are already planning open houses, car cruises, club gatherings and educational events to commemorate the day.”
